I don't get to photograph the rich and famous very often, but here's Richard Branson at a recent media event at Newark Airport.

He's certainly both of those, well captured, it's like himself.

Nice - I think Sir would be pleased.

I hope he never succumbs to the "oh no I'm aging let's have surgery" mania that seems to be all around.

Nicely done image. Gives me ideas for speakers at events (something I do fairly often.)

I get emails addressed to "Dear Respected Sir" from studetns quite often. I introduce courses saying "If you really respect sir you will bother fo find out sir's proper title and name."

Thanks for the comments. He certainly is an interesting person and it's hard not to admire what he's been able to do with his life.

There are very few people in this world that are real mavericks, pioneers, truly larger than life. This guy definitely fits that bill and I've always rather liked him. He tends to remind me of a lion a lot for some reason. Nice shot...
